I became a part of Kansas City Bone & Joint Clinic in August 2016, but have been in practice since 2007. After my Orthopaedic residency, I served three years active duty in the Air Force as an Orthopaedic Surgeon, deploying to Afghanistan during that time. After my military service I spent an additional year of training in joint replacement surgery, completing a Joint Replacement Fellowship with Joint Implant Surgeons in Columbus, Ohio. During this year, I assisted in performing hundreds of joint replacement surgeries. I then took a position with Banner Medical Group in Phoenix, Arizona where I spent 5 years as the joint replacement specialist in the group, before joining Kansas City Bone and Joint.  

I am experienced in less invasive techniques including partial knee and anterior hip replacements. I also specialize in treating patients who are experiencing problems with previous joint replacements or need revisions. I am committed to understanding my patients’ concerns and finding the best possible options to restore their mobility, function and quality of life.  

I am Board Certified in Orthopaedic Surgery, and a fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, and the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons. As a member of these national organizations, I remain active in keeping up with the latest research and cutting edge techniques.  

I attended Dartmouth College for my undergraduate studies and the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California for medical school. I completed my orthopaedic surgery residency at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan.  

Although I find my work very rewarding, in my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing guitar, and biking.
